Episode Notes

A note from Stephanie...

This is episode is partly to learn together...


I admit that I take photos and videos so often that I know I sometimes forget to stop and enjoy my travels without always feeling like I need to share it with the world... with a filter, and proper lighting... and the right hashtag...


I think we could all use a reminder about the good and bad of travelling with social media top-of-mind.

Instagram Tips

A lot of people want to portray that they are leading some kind of perfect life, which is quite silly.

The answer is not to stop traveling but to travel mindfully.

Try going to places that aren’t being showcased, and share your own experiences instead of trying to mimic others.

Learn some etiquette:

  • Be kind, ask permission
  • Share the photo with subject (person in photo, business who made the food)
  • Don’t walking directly into other people’s shots
  • Don’t taking too long to capture a photo when there’s a line of others waiting their turn
  • Observe posted signs and local customs.
  • Be aware your actions may have negative consequences.
  • Be aware that a selfie-stick can also double as a weapon. Wield carefully and responsibly. 
  • Don't put yourself or others at risk to achieve a stellar shot.
